most boring and over rated team in history

How can they be overrated?
2019-09-07 23:48
they play in an era of bad cs teams, if they played in 2015 like this they wouldn't be top 7
2019-09-07 23:49
no, the top 7 of 2019 would be top1 in 2015
2019-09-07 23:50
thats my point, if they played vs the good teams back in 2015 they would be top 7 at best. since they're playing in 2019 they arent being tested. liquid is the same, i think ibp would beat them

he meant a top 7 team from nowadays would be top 1 in 2015 and it's obvious, cs evolved and new tactics were developed. He basically said you have the brain of a silver elite master

Do you realize that Astralis core is still together since 2013 (Copenhagen Wolves) 2014 (Dignitas) 2015 (TSM) and now Astralis (since 2016)? ~dev1ce, dupreeh and xyp9x
2019-09-08 09:10
Germany Fabbsen
+1 I think they're the only core that is still together aren't they? And TSM was one of the best teams back then aswell, they just had their problems with choking and csgo wasn't evolved as much as it is today with psychologists and what ever. In my opinion CSGO is very competetive rn. The standards are so high and before the playoffs began there were potentially 6 teams who could've won the major and even 2 of those got upset by the other 2 teams and one of it is in the finals

No chance, fnatic kept the core of the major winning rosters until like 2017, if i can remember, they couldn't keep up with the changing meta. Top1 in 2015 could fit in top10 2019, at best.
2019-09-08 00:29
the meta changed, fnatic at their peak would outclass Astralis. keep in mind what goes up will come down, same thing for the Astralis era, sk era etc

oh fuck its even deeper then Your logic is fantastically stupid then: We live in bad era of cs teams, all teams are shit and we watch shitshow
2019-09-08 09:12
well we do even when astralis dropped off a cliff for months no team stood up, only liquid but look how easily liquid gets upset
2019-09-08 09:14
You quite explicitly proved that Astralis is the only good team. Well fucking done mate.
2019-09-09 10:23
what? they're number 1 team right now where did i say otherwise? is your brain turned on?
2019-09-09 11:01
They are and also they are chronic chokers to boot. Disband needed since hiko was on the team.
2019-09-08 16:43
TSM in 2015 was great and one of the team that made this period really great for CSGO.... And the 3 teams rivalry at this time was certainly the best era of CSGO
2019-09-08 09:12
TSM #2
2019-09-08 12:28
They consistently beat Fnatic #1 team in 2015 in bo3s and won 6 tournaments and were ranked #1 for a period of time, they just choked and failed to win the Cluj Nappoca major otherwise they possibly could have had their own era in 2015 LOL. Try again.

2019-09-08 00:34
But how can they be overrated
2019-09-08 00:34
Of course they are overrated. There are literally 0 plays worth watching and remembering with Astralis. All they have is autism, double peeks, camping and smoke kills. It is kinda like watching Germans play football. Kinda on the same level.
2019-09-08 11:39
But they still win
2019-09-08 13:52
But how is that being overrated wtf? You can say that they play boring, but what you have just described is incredibly good csgo so how are they overrated?
2019-09-08 16:33
Overrated in terms of entertainment is the whole game and its meta. Astralis team play-style is secondary here. They however have very boring autistic playstyle. I don't care if they are efficient, I am not German OMEGALUL. Efficiency is not a virtue in itself for me.
2019-09-08 19:39
How are they overrated in terms of entertainment if everyone says that they are playing boring?

I get it what you mean, kind of like watching Khabib fight. Boring and a safe win. But I definitely don't agree thats what Astralis is doing.
2019-09-27 10:02

2019-09-08 00:57
They had the easiest run of any team probably in history. The semis run proved exactly nothing about RNG except that they’re not quite as shit as they were two months ago.
2019-09-08 09:08
Beating the 3-0 team is easy to you? Doing a reverse sweep is easy? I beg you kind sir, go fuck thyself in the most appropriate of fashions. Thou art a piece of uncouth shit.

2019-09-07 23:51
they never beat anyone easily its always pretty close on scoreboard because they lose lots of rounds then somehow win a bunch of grounds, this is not greatness
2019-09-08 00:15
Finland Faust_fSt
The last 2 major finals their opponents got 30 rounds across 4 maps. That's pretty easy.

2019-09-08 00:37

2019-09-08 00:41
i could queue with randoms in mm and beat that nip era lineup
2019-09-08 00:43
Did you actually see todays match or the one yesterday? Explain how a 2-0 match = really close
2019-09-08 00:55
no i didnt i just woke up and saw results, same shit as usual dont matter if it 2-0
2019-09-08 00:57
You're not making any sense.
2019-09-08 01:07
i havent watched any of the major games what dont u understand, typical vaccinated nord
2019-09-08 01:08
Lets try again. When a match ends 2-0 then it was not close, in fact it suggests that the winning team was dominating and if you then look at score from each map and find that on neither map it was even close to going into overtime clearly it was not close. So essentially when you claim Astralis never beat anyone easily the facts clearly speak against you, trying to throw insults at me doesn't change the facts either that just makes you look dumb. So in conclusion. You're dumb for speaking on something when not knowing the facts and twice so for then doubling down when those facts go against you.
2019-09-08 01:49
sorry but when autistralias dropped off in form significantly recently, lucky to be top 5 for a while no one else rose to the top except liquid, but we all know liquid are not a true top 1 team. this proves my point that Astralis are not a realistic top 1 in the history of cs, just a better team in a shit era
2019-09-08 01:52
Two things. A. What ever your point is now, that does not in any way prove that todays match was close. Stop deflecting. B. Saying it is an shit era is just you putting out more unfounded claims. The top teams have never been more professional that they are today, that is simply an automatic result of the money being bigger than ever so more people play full time. That you just happen to not like the teams at the top is your problem, stop making excuses and pretend they are boring or not worthy and so on.

Its the same reason why Fnatic was so good to watch in late 2015/early 2016, the dynamic was so perfect, they played the game so damn well.
2019-09-09 10:25
They have great firepower, strats, gamesense and calls. I can see how one team dominating can be boring, but they surely aren't overrated and from a neutral viewpoint they play really really good cs.

Definitely not overrated. Even if they don't win this major (which they likely will win), they're still easily the best team to ever play this game. The statistics show it. To be fair, Liquid got in their own head, and realistically should have had this major in the bag, but regardless, if Astralis win this, they 100% are deserving.

best team ever, but avangar too strong maybe win
2019-09-08 00:41
They're not overrated at all they're the best team of all time. But they're boring and not fun to watch. So i have to agree
2019-09-08 00:42
match vs liquid was fun to watch i think people just say boring because they dont understand the level that ast played at
2019-09-08 00:44
It's not fun for the avg viewer and even for me who understands what they're doing it's not the breathtaking CS that would keep you on the edge of your chair that old fnatic or SK brought. They are a boring team through and through
2019-09-08 00:46
true but its the highest level of cs and team work from any team ever, I miss old lg/sk my fav people to watch
2019-09-08 00:47
So they should play dumber CS in order for more people to understand it, maybe Valve should change the game so there is less types of guns and make the maps simpler as well. Frankly you just can not be serious. If what Astralis is doing is to clever for some, then I am surprise those people are even able to watch a stream online. Since you can not grasp the beauty of the way Astralis plays CS then I am sorry, but it is not Astralis doing something wrong it is your lack of understanding the game that is the problem. I bet you are one of those people that also think Chess is boring.

navi? rofl navi were 100x better when starix was coach pre coach rule.
2019-09-08 00:50
No, they were more competitive because cs was leveled much lower considering a skill. Starix navi would get 16-0ed vs liquid or astralis
2019-09-08 12:23
+1 finally someone knows. Liquid are only competition for Astralis and look how easy they fall.

TSM was a top team in 2015 and one of the few teams to be able to give fnatic a hard time. And Astralis is way better than old TSM ever was.

Turkey erasmusguy
old fashion lovers please accept that astralis is the GOAT, astralis could rekt 2014 nip 2015 fnatic and 2016 g2-lg easily. They are waaaay better than these old teams. Their game sense, calls, nade usage, in-game tactics and skills are at top level. No team was at this level. If you watch even one game of astralis you can understand this unless you are a moron, child, hater, braindead etc. tldr: i dont like astralis too, but they are the gods of csgo.

I mean they are really fun to watch. Their tactics are amazing but I dont like seeing one team winning over and over again.

2019-09-08 07:41
the nvidia era was kinda devalued after they got busted, but right now they are playing pretty good even without it, reespect for that. although it makes for non exiting playoff games what now, 2 "real finals " with the same shit, wasnt exciting at any point, as a neutral its good cs but thats it. it lacks emotions

You lack historical context if you think this lacks emotion. They have choked soo hard in the past, that winning was a faraway dream for them, except for the odd small tournament. Then, they consistently started winning and setting the meta on various maps. Then, when the boiling point for an unprecedented run was made, in Katowice'19, they took a break which cost them. Now, they wanna say sorry to their fans, and maybe a million other fans of CS, by winning another Major. How does this lack emotions?

Astralis set the Meta. Map-Pool wise, AVANGAR have already lost: AVANGAR will possibly ban Nuke/Vertigo, and Astralis will ban Mirage. Then, AVANGAR picks Overpass/D2, while Astralis picks Nuke/Vertigo. The Decider will be Inferno. AVANGAR is literally playing on enemy soil, except for Overpass, where it has a slight chance to grind out an overtime, maybe. Only if we go to Quintuple OT, then will Astralis lose.

At least watching liquid play doesn't put you to sleep lol

overated maybe boring yes +1654651352498
2019-09-08 11:48
would not surprise me if Astralis starts a dominating Vertigo like they did on Nuke... They Just find new ideas when other teams addapt to them. Thats why they are so good... And then there is Gla1ve with is a very intelligent guy...
2019-09-08 13:43
they must lose today, for the sake of csgo.
2019-09-08 13:52
they wonned now cs is ruined, such a boring game now even more boring pro scene
2019-09-09 08:45
2019-09-09 14:42
If they win today (which will most likely happen), this is the end of CSGO. They are successful but horribly boring to watch. Where is the point in watching CS anymore? Only Jame can save CS and the only chance is today. If AVANGAR win this proves that Jesus Christ returned to save CS

2019-09-08 20:27
Don't get me wrong, they're undoubtedly the best team in the game and deserve all the success they're getting, but man are they boring to watch. All they do is alternate between rushing A or B for 4-5 rounds in a row with some smoke kills sprinkled in between.
2019-09-08 20:30
I don't know why am I still amazed at sheer number of idiots on this website, it is hltv after all, but still Jawdroppingly idiotic, sometimes it's hard people as stupid exist

unfortunately I did yes. Obviously I did. And I dont find it time well spend.
2019-09-09 12:15
You think its boring because they are so good? and how can they be overrated, they just beat team liquid 2-0 in major? the team say is number 1 rn? astralis is the most dominant team to touch cs
2019-09-09 09:39
Nt They set standards is cs, not their fault that there's no counter for their play. Why dont you go play against them show us how it's done?
2019-09-09 09:48
i reckon if i match maked with 4 other random Aussies I could easily get 12 rounds vs them on their best maps, i think i could probably beat them on dust 2
2019-09-09 09:57
ahaha you're insane
2019-09-10 12:35
If they switch off their monitors maybe
2019-09-10 13:30
i didn't watch any single match because of booooring astralis
2019-09-09 10:17
People, this is what you call COD viewers, the people who just want to watch for the sake of "sick frags" and not all the technics behind them. Don't be like him. Don't be like them.
2019-09-10 06:53
You guys call them boring, but that's the result of knowing the other teams and antistrat their strats. What's for the most Top10 Teams rn is advenced strats is the basic strats of Astralis. No other team can reach them in point of strats and antistrats. No other teams can read their opponent like Astralis does.
2019-09-09 11:06
I'd rather watching some tier 3 asian team than watching asstralis playing. They are so boring to watch, playing with the pussiest style ever and getting kill through smoke by using nvidia bug
2019-09-09 11:08
2019-09-09 11:12
That pretty much says it all about how shitty a big chunk of the fanbase really is.
2019-09-09 23:00
You can't blame astralis for swedish teams being bad though. Realistically denmark and sweden have been the important cs regions since france and VP put down their respective torches.
2019-09-09 12:17
I follow a handful of sports and this community, by far, is the whiniest, most ignorant and fake so-called fanbase I've ever had the displeasure of witnessing. Blaming teams for being too good or boring because the rest can't compete on their level, simply shows you haven't got any grasp about what it takes to become the best in professional sports and you aren't capable of appreciating the game itself when it's being played at the highest level. Instead of encouraging other teams and players to raise their level and professionalism you whine and complain about the best not lowering theirs. That's not a wish for the game and scene to get better, that's just a wish for your opponents to get worse. 3rd rate fan attitude and the real reason CS:GO might lose its momentum in popularity and quality. TBH it seems like some players still consider it a semi-hobby where they can make a bit of money before moving on, instead of a real sport where pro attitudes and lifestyles are necessary to be the best. I love watching SC:GO, but I fucking loathe the community most of the time. Cheers y'all.

Navi vs nrg in the quarterfinals got just as many viewers as he grand final, I think that csgo is the only esport on a downwards trend of viewers.
2019-09-09 23:29
agreed. i hate to watch astralis play and all of the players lack character outside of the game
2019-09-10 07:07

Teams always get better with time but todays teams are still shit for this period of time only good team in the past 2years are astralis. Must suck winning a bunch of majors in a time when ppl dont care about the majors. There is no hype or special feeling when majors being played, like watching a blast event. 29 teams in top 30 are t2 scene weak as fuck
2019-09-10 12:38
+1, i remember majors when skin betting was around. those were the days, I used to love watching those games knowing I was going to win some kids asiimov awp

I don't like astralis either but i think it was more of a liquid,nrg and avangar's fault than astralis bc i remember watching ast vs nrg grp stage and what a match that was even ast vs cr4zy was awesome to watch. We just have too many grp stage teams and others are chokers. Astralis's playstyle seems boring to me yes but I don't doubt that if competition is high they can compete or not. They'll for sure deliver.

CS from its very inception was always meant to be a team and tactical game, only ... it years of coding and chances *and* a team like Astralis to make people see this ... If you Think Astralis plays boring CS, you have ZERO clue about CS in general ..., and maybe you should go back and get a copy of old doom and play that instead ? :-)

+1 the random plays were boring. Astralis brought scructure, and winning with utility, aka use your brain instead of hands to win a game. Which is amazing.
2019-12-04 10:19
lolz in 2015 they would rape teams 10 times easier
2019-12-03 10:09
lmao, kiddos dont understand that the skill "limit" is breaking every single "era" 2015 fnatic and nip were the best - at that time, astralis isnt individually best per player but as a whole team they are unbeatable (most of the time) with all the respect i can give to the thread opener - u need to go and check your brain if you cant understand it. in 2012\2013 this game was garbage skillwise, i think most of current fpl-C players are better than the 2012-3 pro players.

lol you can’t really deny that astralis is the best team to ever play csgo. And if you think this era is bad teams, go watch a video of a pro match in 2015. It’s a joke compared to now. Tactics have evolved so much since then, and astralis are the only ones who can keep up with it on a consistent basis. Making them the best. They are rated accordingly
